then they would have put nancy pelosi in charge of the house of representatives. see, i think these ideas that we talked about, i think they're popular ideas. this is a very close election. >> hogan, people are going to look at this and wonder why is paul ryan still clofrping around on the same cement shoes that tanked his bid on the romney ticket and heading back to d.c. after it was a mandate that the nation spoke and put the president back in power? >> i think this largely speaks to political capital. and right now the president has a lot of political capital. i don't think he should waste that on someone like susan rice's nomination where it will be met with a ton of resistance, rightly or wrongly, that's not the point. he should use that political capital to try to ram through some of the things he's been talking about on the campaign trail for the last year, but even previous to that in 2008. paul ryan makes a good point, though. i do agree. i don't think the president has a mandate per se but a lot of political capital. just depends how he wants to spend it and the republicans, if they don

. >>> want to take you to washington, d.c. we see nancy pelosi talking outside the white house after meeting with the president this morning with other congressional leaders. let's listen in. >> we should have a goal in terms of how much deficit reduction. we should have a deadline before christmas. we should show some milestones of success so that confidence can build as we reach our solution. because if we do not reach agreement, not only will we miss the opportunity for doing something good for our economy and lifting the spirits and the confidence in our country, we will have an economic downturn that must be avoided. we understand our responsibility there. we understand that it has to be about cuts. it has to be about revenue. it has to be about growth. it has to be about the future. so as we cut investments and as we talk about revenue, we have to do so in a way that promotes growth and supports the future. it was good. i feel confident that a solution may be in sight. mitch? >> i can only echo the observations of the other leaders that it was a constructive meeting. we all understand
. now a new call for answers from susan rice herself. negotiating fiscal cliff. did nancy pelosi just draw a red line? today she's saying she won't sign off on any deal that does not increase taxes on the rich. >>> and president obama is dealing with all of this while in the midst of his trip through asia, including israel and gaza on the brink of war. >> we're going to have to see what kind of progress we can make in the next 24-36-48 hours. if we're serious about wantsing to resolve this situation and a create a genuine peace process it starts with no more missiles being fired into israel's territory. >> first off, we're in a developing story in the middle east. let's go now to stephanie gosk, who is in tel aviv with the latest. what's the tone on ground today? >> well you hear the president say that as long as rockets were dropping, it was going to be impossible to get a cease-fire here. and the rockets definitely keep on coming. and there have been attacks back and forth. a couple of volleys of rockets that came toward tel aviv. intercepted by the israeli missile defense system, i
into the holiday week. congresswoman nancy pelosi made some headlines about this comment about tax hikes for the wealthiest americans. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax increase s for wealthy we have seen some capping income rates for high income earners -- is that acceptable at all? >> no. >> not at all? >> no, the president made it clear that there is not enough resources and what you have just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> okay. hogan, some of the gop are open to higher taxes for the top earners and senator mitch mcconnell came out after the talks last week, and took the microphone with pelosi and with reid and boehner at the side saying that revenue is on the table, but when the talks ramp back up after thanksgiving, is this an issue to be real negotiation or dig-in time? >> i hope it is time for a negotiation. look, if there is one thing that we learned from the president's campaign, he promised to raise taxes on the wealthy. and here is a news flash to the republicans out there, elections have consequences, and that is what h
on this topic, they'll get plenty of help from our side. >> there's been talk about nancy pelosi and the speculation that she's going to step down as minority leader. have you heard anything about that and what are your thoughts about that? you're returning to work tomorrow. >> well, i got in trouble two years ago when i was asked that question because i really didn't at that time think that then speaker pelosi was going to want to be minority leader. if he wants to be minority leader, she will have that job as long as she wants it. she's been a tireless worker for the party. if she decides to step down, i think actually the leadership pieces will fall into place pretty quickly without contention in the democratic caucus and we'll have a very, very strong leadership contingent going forward in this congress. but right now, she hasn't laid her cards on the table. i assume we'll learn more later this week. >> i think that was a really good answer. i don't think you can get in trouble from that. you did a great job. congressman, thank you for your time. >> thanks, thomas. >>> florid
in session. nancy pelosi saying she would stay in her job as democratic leader as long as you stated in yours as the head of the democratic congressional campaign committee. now yesterday she was asked about the democratic leadership. but and i want to play some of what the exchange was and get your reaction to that. take a listen. >> some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term. >> i think that what you will see, and let's for a moment honor it as a legislate question. although it's quite offensive, but you don't realize it, i guess. the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost decade now of leadership is to let younger and newer people to the congress. >> sir, in your estimation, did he have a point in pointing out all the players are staying the same, and is there a potential for new leadership blood to move things along in what many people would consider the gridlock that exists in washington, d.c. >> well, i love luke, but i think his question wasn't legislate. le
